Managers have a tendency to do what they call "coaching" but in fact admit that the problems in their own departments are caused by incompetent managers in other departments and nothing is done to correct this.
Support from management
The management in this company panders much more to political correctness and emotional immaturity than to the business issues. Leadership in sales, for example, is non-existent, with widely diverging sales goals for members of the close teams.
Most colleagues within their own departments work well, but managers do not enforce civility and emotional maturity between departments.
You have got to be kidding me..
Attitude towards older colleagues
There is little or no respect from the young employees towards the older more experienced co-workers, to the point of insulting and condescending comments not acted on by management.
There is no clear path for advancement at this company.
Overall compensation for your work
Basic compensation is OK, but medical coverage changes, sometimes yanking benefits without warning from employees in the middle of medical treatment, for example; there is exactly zero 401k match. Remote employees have much less benefits than the ones at HQ.
The image portrayed on the web site has no resemblance to reality at the company.
50 people lost their jobs in November because of the incompetence of the sales VP. Some of them had just been given expatriate assignments overseas and were simply abandoned there with no offer or assistance to return, and the company has refused to pay compensation that is due by law, forcing them to hire legal representation to sue the company for payment. Would you work for a company that treats people like this?
The work is incredibly challenging, but the rewards are not.
Inclusive / Diverse
This company hires people who think email has tone, and do not take action to control employees who interpret any criticism as a personal affront.
Suggestions for improvement
- I doubt there's anything I can say to them, since they think they can do no wrong.
What I like about the company
When I first started working for the company, I was excited about the opportunity to help other companies be successful using our products. The ROI potential was huge and that was a lot of fun.
What I dislike about the company
It turns out that management simply doesn't care that much about employees. Like many companies in California and particularly Silicon Valley, they consider employees to be expendable and little more than just numbers on a piece of paper.
